Mechanism Of Action Gout is a form of acute arthritis that is characterized by the accumulation of crystals of monosodium urate and urate crystals in or around a joint, leading to inflammation and persistent urate crystal deposition in bones, joints, tissues, and other organs that may exacerbate over time. Hyperuricemia is closely related to gout, whereby it may exist for many years before the first clinical attack of gout; thus, aberrated serum uric acid levels and hyperuricemia are believed to be the biochemical aberration involved in the pathogenesis of gout.
Description of the Drug: Febuxostat is a xanthine oxidase inhibitor used for the management of chronic hyperuricemia in adults with gout who have an inadequate response or intolerance to allopurinol.
